What is it with rebellious open-source hackers rockin the Google gear?

I wonder if this is similar to how some of the Western leftists of the
50s/60s/70s supported the USSR ;-)

Being not-Microsoft doesn't keep Google from being another giant corporation
running out of innovative steam.

    I think you are absolutely right, lexicontrol@gmail.com.

    Incidentally, at least here in the states, I think the problem is that no one
    recognizes a contender in the search field to step up to the plate. Google
    started out doing search better than anyone else and has managed to hang on to
    that fuzzy feeling even though they do not actually do it better any longer.
    But with whom to replace them? Russia has Yandex, Asia gets Baidu...what do we
    have? Give it another 2 years...I think the face of search will start to
    change.
